Programs That Are Predatory: It’s Not Just at For-Profit Colleges

Kevin Careywrote for the New York Times about the notion of expanding the Obama administration's for-profit regulations to certain nonprofit institutions:

For the past eight years, the Obama administration has waged a battle against predatory for-profit colleges. On Monday, the Department of Education released a final salvo — a list of hundreds of college programs that load students with more debt than they can afford to repay.

The failing-program list included ITT Tech, which filed for bankruptcy under federal pressure late last year, as well as industry leaders like Kaplan University and the University of Phoenix. And there — among a host of local graphic design, fashion, cosmetology and barber schools — is Harvard University.
